Cardinals sign four tryout players

The Cardinals signed four players who tried out during their rookie minicamp last weekend.

Defensive tackle Siupeli Anau, wide receiver C.J. Duncan, linebacker Airius Moore and offensive lineman Greg Pyke now are under contract. The Cardinals cut cornerback Elijah Battle, linebacker Mike Needham, offensive lineman Austin Olsen and wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman in corresponding moves.

Anau re-joins the Cardinals after he was released on May 9. He spent last season on the Cardinals’ practice squad after signing as a rookie free agent out of Northern Arizona. Anau made 55 tackles and a Big Sky-leading 8.5 sacks during his senior season of 2016.

If the NFL wanted to use the allegations of memorabilia fraud, the evidence generated during the trial, the fact that Eli Manning settled the lawsuit in lieu of testifying in open court about the situation (including but not limited to answering aggressive questions about an email message in which he asked for “ 2 helmets that can pass as game used “) as the basis for an investigation, it easily could have.

Garcia spent all of last season on the non-football illness list due to blood clots in his lungs. He said he was cleared to play in March, but was waived with the same designation.

Garcia made 42 starts at left tackle over four years at Troy and didn’t allow a sack in his final college season. The Jets worked out Byron Bell on Monday, so they are looking for offensive line depth on a couple of fronts.

Count Richard Sherman among those who aren’t sure what the future holds for Earl Thomas and the Seattle Seahawks .

Thomas’ current contract with the Seahawks expires after the 2018 season, and Sherman believes his former Legion of Boom co-conspirator should get paid.

I think Earl Thomas deserves the money he’s asking for, Sherman told NFL Network’s Michael Robinson during Robinson’s youth football camp in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday. “I think he deserves to be compensated as the top safety in the league. Whether Seattle does that or not is up to them.”cardinals_024
